BCM-95 - THE WORLD'S LARGEST SELLING BIO-AVAILABLE TURMERIC EXTRACT BCM-95 is one of the most powerful botanicals in the world today. It is a 100 percent standardized extract of turmeric, a patented formulation of curcumin. Curcumin, the bio-active component of turmeric, has proven antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties. It helps to prevent a wide range of major inflammatory diseases like arthritis, metabolic diseases, cardio-vascular disease and cancer. However, the poor bio-availability of curcumin in the human body has severely limited its application to effectively tackling diseases. BCM-95 is produced with a unique and patented process that delivers the most bioactive components of turmeric extract, which is seven to ten times more bio-available than conventional turmeric extracts. The resounding success of BCM-95 stands testimony to Arjuna's unflagging emphasis on research. AKBAMAX (BOSPURE)
